@dcelasun Sorry.. copy'n'paste error. I reverted to ssmtp-2.64-17-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz

@chaserhkj That fixed it

As recommended by @chaserhkj, I reinstalled the latest version then set AuthMethod=login in my ssmtp.conf and all it all started working again.

@JustinSB Did you set AuthMethod=login in your ssmtp.conf?

In the XOAUTH2 patch the check for AuthMethod=login is added for password-based authentication as well. So if that was unset in your configuration, that could be a problem with the new version.

@JustinSB you mention 2.64-18 in both parts, what version did you revert to?

Updated to ssmtp-2.64-18-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz and every time I try to send an email it fails with this Authorisation Error.

Sending either this way:

echo "Testing...1...2...3" | ssmtp my_real_email_address

or this way:

mail -s "Test01" my_real_email_address < /dev/null

Gives this error:

sendmail: Authorization failed (500 command unrecognized)

Reverted back to ssmtp-2.64-17-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz and it all works again, just as it always did. What can I try?

@chaserhkj added, thanks for the patch!

Hi, I ported a patch allowing this version of ssmtp to use XOAUTH2 authentication for better security. Can you include it in this package?

@TwentyoneThree ssmtp rebuild fixed it for me.

The systemd makedepends is not needed. Package filesystem from core already takes care of this as can be seen here:

@TwentyoneThree I don't see that error here, ssmtp is (still) working fine.
$ readelf -d /usr/bin/ssmtp | grep NEEDED | cut -f2 -d[ | cut -f1 -d] | sort
Maybe you need a rebuild?

Stopped working on an up to date Arch system:

ssmtp: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Dependency openssl-1.1 required
